Atlanta officials announced Friday that in preparation for the upcoming sale of debt for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, a due-diligence review found a number of errors in classifying expenses dating back to 2003.

Officials said the impact of the changes for the 2003-2008 period would have reduced the airport’s surplus by an amount ranging from $10.4 million in 2003 to $19.7 million in 2008. The range of the impact of the errors changes the key debt-service coverage ratio to 1.33 in 2003, a reduction of 0.09, to 1.86 in 2008, a reduction of 0.12.
